Below you will find a listing of games/related apps from my personal archive which I have
decided to distribute as a few people have shown interest in my collection and also to help aid against
dataloss as I have already lost one entire section (All games starting with W#) after an very unexciting
turn of events involving multiple modes of media failure back in the early days. Starting from the XT going
all the way up to the pentium 166Mhz, here is my childhood and the later part of my teen years, as this is
every game I ever played, enjoyed, cherished and loved.
This archive has been collected over time one by one, via friends, bulliten boards and towards the later part
IRC. This archive started off on 5.4" floppies, which was then later migrated to 1.4" floppies and then later
migrated onto multiple 100Mb syquest scsi removable cartridges, then over to the new 250Mb syquest cartridge
then backed up onto network storage at my fathers workplace back when 10base-t and novell 4 was the hot shit.
When CDROM came out I migrated the collection over at $25USD/disc and then duplicated it once more until DVD
came out and then it was once more duplicated again and then ISO's taken and stored on RAID5 storage and then
backed up onto LTO tape.
Back in 1997 I used to run a bunch of IRC XDCC eggdrops for #oldwarez on EFNET to serve out individual files
from the archive but this is the first time i've ever distributed the complete collection.
There are some gems in here awaiting to be found, enjoy.
